Leann Rimes - Leann Rimes Confronts Chelsea Handler Live On Air

Leann Rimes and Chelsea Handler had a tense showdown when the country-singing star appeared on Chelsea Lately on Thursday evening (February 9, 2012). Talk of a previous feud between the pair had left tongues wagging before the event, and Handler got straight down to the heart-of-the-matter during the interview.
According to E! Online, Chelsea bluntly told Rimes, "I know that you've seen me talking sh*t about you", to which the singer replied, "Absolutely. I have, which is more why I wanted to come on". Rimes, who was on the show to promote her latest album 'Lady and Gentleman', explained she was a little upset at Handler's comments about her divorce from Dean Sheremet, saying, "And I was watching your show thinking I could get a laugh out of it, instead I was laughing at you laughing at me". The tense atmosphere eased a little once there appeared to be no hard feelings between the pair, with Leann noting, "[It was] the first time I could laugh and cry at the same time". The topic jokingly turned to the singer's apparent "weight issues", and the fact that Rimes only ever seems to be photographed whilst in her bikini. Laughing, the singer said, "I am on the damn beach, for God's sake".
Lady and Gentleman is the thirteenth studio album by the country artist. The record was co-produced by country star Vince Gill and Darrell Brown, whom she worked with on her 2007 effort 'Family'.
